Your Journey Begins
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it” — Maya Angelou

Approach to treatment
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches— psychodynamic, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) – in an effort to discover the happy, peaceful life we all desire. I also incorporate TRM (Trauma Resiliency Model), Somatic Experiencing, and mindfulness-based practices to help individuals understand the biology of traumatic stress reactions and learn specific skills to return the body, mind and spirit back to balance.
“Love has an immense ability to help heal the devastating wounds that life sometimes deals us. Love also enhances our sense of connection to the larger world. Loving responsiveness is the foundation of a truly compassionate, civilized society.”Sue Johnson
I work with individuals as they transition through the many phases of life.
